This is why I don't watch the news...
So...in addition to the fact that the news only reports negative stuff, and also in addition to the fact that on the important stuff, the news is always a day or two behind the newspaper, this is why I don't watch the news:

Last night, Mrs. Mau had a meeting, so I recorded 24. We watched it together after she got home. I had started the VCR (Yes, I still have a VCR) a little before 9, so it recorded some of the 10:00 news. One of the first stories talked about a shooting that happened at Stonecrest Mall, a few miles East of our home. I don't remember her exact words, and I don't feel like looking back at the tape, but the newslady said something to the effect of "Witnesses, who were here on the patio eating 25-cent shrimp, say blah blah blah..." I don't even know what the witnesses said, because we looked at each other and were like "What the hell do the 25-cent shrimp have to do with anything??" and why did she have to enunciate each syllable? Not "Twenny-Fi cent shrimp", but "Ta-wen-tee Five-a Cen-t Sha-rim-P".

...and THAT'S why I don't watch the news.
